  1. What’s UAN:

UAN stand for universal account number which will be allotted by the EPFO (EMPLOYEE PROVIDENT FUND ORGANISATION). Once the employee joins a new company, the employer will collect the PF account details, verifies them then forwards to the EPFO to generate UAN.

AN individual need to register or activate their UAN number to use various services provided by EPFO portal. The process of activating UAN is very simple indeed a matter of few minutes.

Every employer who have more than 20 employees working for him must be registered with EPFO and every employee working under him in his organization with a basic wage of 15000rs should join the EPF. 12% of the employee’s salary is contributed by the employer and employee each towards the Provident Fund (PF). An employee can gain the following benefits on registering with EPFO

  • Download/Print your Updated Passbook anytime
  • Can know our pf balance anytime
  • Download/ Print your UAN Card
  • Update your KYC information
  • Registering UAN for an employee

When an employee joins an organization for the first time, in case a UAN has already been assigned to the employee in the previous organization, he has to give the UAN details to the new employer, in order to get a new UAN generated for the employee, the employer has to follow these steps:

  • Login to EPF Employer Portal using the Establishment ID and password
  • Click on the “Register Individual” tab in the “Member” section
  • Enter the employee’s details such as PAN, Aadhaar, bank details, etc.
  • Approve all details in the “Approval” section.
